Research activities of the MCE group deal with two complementary thematics that require transversal competences (mineral chemistry, characterization, granulometry, calculation, modeling, mechanics etc…). The main thematics are:
Nowadays, the team is composed of 8 full professors and associate professors located at the Civil Engineering department of IUT Nancy-Brabois (university technological institute) where workshops and heavy specific means are available (malaxing tool, test bench, climatic chambers, etc.).
Most research is realized in partnership with industrials (Cifre thesis, etc.) or within the framework of national projects or ANR, or in collaboration with other teams from IJL or others laboratories.
